  • Hi Suchit,

    Thanks for writing.  I can't think of a better place to celebrate a fourth or forty-fourth birthday!  With five days at Walt Disney World, I would absolutely encourage you to visit multiple theme parks.  In fact, you can visit all four, and find that there are many attractions, parades, shows and entertainment options just perfect for young children.  At Epcot, for example, The Seas with Nemo and Friends was a huge hit when my kids were little.  At Hollywood Studios, Disney Junior Live! is an interactive show that is sure to delight your daughter and son for that matter!  As for where to stay, it's a tough, but wonderful, call.  The Contemporary is certainly extremely convenient, as you can either hop on the monorail or walk right to the gates of the Magic Kingdom.  However, Animal Kingdom Lodge will afford your family an up close and personal view (view a savanna-view room) of exotic African wildlife.  Both are truly great choices.  Finally, I love celebrating birthdays with a character meal.  Chef Mickey's and Crystal Palace are two of my favorite venues to have a festive, family birthday meal.  Be sure to pick up a free "birthday pin" for your princess at Guest Relations at whichever park you visit first!

    Have a wonderful time!
